Eagle Trail and Bayshore District Twilight Camp

June 8-12 from 4:30 - 9:00 pm at Lomax Arena (1508 1/2 Lomax Rd La Porte, TX 77571)

Twilight Camp is a council camp hosted by districts for Scouts entering 1st – 5th grade. Scouts earn rank advancements, learn new skills, play sports and games, make crafts, shoot BB guns and archery, but most of all have fun. Scouts can attend any district’s camp that best suits their schedule. Participants receive a t-shirt and patch.

The cost if $60 for Cub Scouts. Register by May 1, 2015 and get $5 off. A late fee is added after May 17, 2015. Lots of volunteers are needed to make camp a success, so please consider volunteering.  Adult volunteers can also register their non-Scouting children ages 3-5 (potty trained) or girls ages 6-13.   Boy Scouts and girls ages 14-17 can volunteer.

At camp, Cub Scouts will salute those heroes who help keep us safe and secure each and every day. Can only adults be heroes? Heroes are often ordinary kids who did something out of the ordinary! Sometimes a hero is obvious, the policeman who risks his life to protect us from violence or the fireman who pulls people out of burning buildings. Some people around us seem like regular people, but they are heroes because they used to be soldiers in the military and served our country to keep us free. Heroes are all around us. You never know when or where emergencies will arise. Scouting teaches us how to handle these situations. We don’t expect to get hurt, and don’t expect to need first aid, but we are prepared just in case. Do Your Best! One person can make a difference. One person who helps can change someone’s world. Maybe one day the hero will be you or your Cub Scout.

The State of Texas requires that every camp volunteer attend orientation training and have current classroom Youth Protection Training (YPT) certification (expires after 6/12/13. Both trainings will be offered:

- Thursday, May 21, 2015 at 7:00 pm at University Baptist Church Chapel (use entrance off of Middlebrook)

Volunteers Needed

Volunteers who become involved in Scouting in order to share their skills and values with young people find learning, growth, and fulfillment in the experience. Studies show that volunteering in the Scouting Program has a positive impact in many areas of adult life including, Communication Skills, Relationship Skills, Survival and Outdoor Skills, Management and Leadership Skills. Read the Volunteer Outcomes Study conducted by Harris Interactive.

We rely on many dedicated volunteers to promote the Boy Scouts of America's mission of preparing young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetime by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law. We have about 1,000 volunteers in Bayshore District and Eagle Trail District providing leadership and mentoring to Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturers. Through the dedication of our many volunteers, we remain the foremost youth program of character development and values-based leadership training in America.

We are looking for volunteers to serve in leadership roles in our proposed new district and share in the positive experiences of the Scouting programs. Please let us know what areas you are interested in and that best match your strengths and abilities.

ArrowTour is one of three programs that comprise a year-long celebration of the Order of the Arrow’s centennial anniversary. In the summer of 2015, four delegations of youth Arrowmen will travel to council camps and Scouting events to bring our national centennial experience to Scouts, Arrowmen, and communities throughout the country.

ArrowTour will provide opportunities to reflect, connect, and discover the Order's Centuries of Service, both past and future. Youth leaders from around the country are already hard at work building the ArrowTour program. The program has been designed for all Scouts, OA members, Scouting alumni, family, friends and non-members alike. Whether a first-year camper or a seasoned volunteer, the ArrowTour program will offer something for everyone. Some of the planned ArrowTour programs include:

  • Exploration: History displays, interactive timelines, and program videos
  • OA Evening Show: A camp-wide program that will recognize the Order’s rich 100 year history, and reveal where the steps to our second century of service begin. We will end the show with a camp-wide social.
  • Activities: Silk screening (bring a shirt), branding (bring hat or belt), 100th-anniversary trading post, and recreational games.
  • Service: ArrowTour Team service project, alumni outreach to benefit local councils.
